Financial help: latest information:

local official advice giving some clarity.

.

Over the last weeks, these news pages have attempted to keep abreast of the latest financial help on offer from the government:

Financial help and resilience: a further guide

.

The government has made further new offers of financial help:

UK furlough scheme extended by four months | bbc.co.uk

UK emergency CBILS and ‘bounce back’ loans for small firms hits £15 billion | standard.co.uk

.

Although in another area, it might not be enough:

UK retailers warn of ‘imminent collapse’ without more state help | ft.com

Just 10% of promised government-backed coronavirus loans reach businesses | uk.finance.yahoo.com

.

It can seem a rather unclear, if confusing, picture:

Boris Johnson’s announcement of new coronavirus measures caused ‘confusion’ for businesses, says CBI chief | businessinsider.nl

.

Nevertheless, MPs are trying to give clear, helpful information to constituents – with East Devon’s MP here:

Coronavirus guidance for people and businesses | simonjupp.org.uk

And another MP’s website with very helpful info and advice here:

Covid-19 Support nigelmillsmp.com

.

A very good place to go is the Citizens’ Advice Bureau:

citizensadvice.org.uk

And another is the Federation of Small Businesses:

.

And locally, there is the Chamber of Commerce with a lot of practical information:
